You can buy pizza dough at the grocery store, but that doesn't mean you have to make pizza with it. Lucky Peach has an array of great uses for store-bought pizza dough, but one of my favourites is this homemade focaccia that looks absolutely incredible.

Making it is simple enough though -- just grab some pizza dough the next time you to go the grocery store, and instead of spreading it out and topping it with sauce and your favourite pizza toppings, spread it out on a baking sheet and:
Press the dough into a generously oiled sheet pan and drizzle with even more olive oil. A generous pour of olive oil is the key to great focaccia. Season with kosher salt and a sprinkle of fresh rosemary leaves. Bake at 230°C until browned, about 20 minutes. Serve as is or use it to make sandwiches.
Simple and easy -- and if you like yours a little crispier, keep it in the oven just a touch longer. It's up to you. You can mix up the flavours too if you like, instead of rosemary maybe hit it with some balsamic vinegar, or some cooked-down onion and oil, or even sliced olives while it bakes. It's up to you. For some more simple things you can do with store-bought pizza dough that aren't, well, pizza, check out the full article at Lucky Peach below.
